Fox News host Chris Wallace is now claiming that a ‘well connected’ Republican source has told her there is at least a ’20 percent’ chance that Republicans will vote to impeachment President Trump. As The Hill reports:
Fox’s Chris Wallace said a “well-connected” Washington Republican told him that there’s a 20 percent chance enough Republicans will vote to remove President Trump from office in an impeachment trial in the Senate.
Wallace mentioned his source’s comments during an interview with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on “Fox News Sunday.”

Wallace cited an overwhelming House vote criticizing the president’s policies in Syria and an op-ed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) slamming Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from that country.
He then said he had “talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington, someone whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there’s now a 20 percent chance enough Republicans would vote with Democrats to impeach the president.”
The shocking comments come as Wallace has continued to come under fire from the President and his supporters for continuing to publicly undermine them in the eyes of the American public.
